A new website and online portal for the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers

We were approached by ABPCO with a brief to re-design and develop their website. They wanted to make it easier to use and navigate and to extend its usefulness to their members and community. The old site was exteremly text heavy and hard to find your way around as well as not being engaging or well optimised. 

The specification of the website

The website would be built on a bespoke content management system. It needed to deliver and render front end content quickly and efficiently and manage large volums of user data. The new site would also be replacing an old App which wasn't really being utilised and was pretty clunky and out of date. The website would include the following functionality:

  • Complex User Management
  • Editable pages of standard content
  • Members dashboard with profile mamagement
  • Forum module
  • Events listings
  • Event Managment
  • Blog and News
  • Downloadable branding and documentation
  • Registration processing with comitee approval
  • Voting and election modules
  • Reports
  • Seo tools
  • Social Media integration

The sitealso comapnies and institutions to find professional event organisers to help them. Memebers of the site will receive event tender notifications when they are submitted and vetted. The site is now getting lots of use from its members and great engagement. It was a really nice project to work on and team thouroughly enjoyed it.
